July Garden Linky Party!

It's the middle of July. Summer is on and our garden is exploding! I thought it might be fun to have a garden photo link-up.... Just post some photos of your garden on your blog and come back here to link up to it. I can't wait to see what everyone is growing! If you are going to link up, try to do so by the end of the week!
Here is what you can find at our house....

Our front yard is our garden space, as the ducks have taken over the less-sunny back yard.

Our new parking strip garden boxes are filled with zucchini, butternut squash, cucumbers, spaghetti squash, beans, nasturtium, and sunflowers. The zucchini is already going crazyW!

We are patiently (sort of) waiting for our tomatoes to come! We have sungolds, tomatillos, and 3 types of heirlooms!

Lots of potatoes...

Some strawberries still to come..

A hop plant that is new to our garden this year.. maybe we will find space to brew a batch of homegrown beer?

An unknown type of pepper plant... ancho, maybe?

Blackberries in the making...

A grapevine growing out of control....

And lots and lots of herbs!

We also have bush beans, pole beans, carrots, beets, and greens.. but those pictures aren't as exciting. What's growing in your garden?

Pin It Now!


  1. Wow, that is gorgeous! So wish I had a garden like that. We came to Lubbock with a house full of container plants and left with not a single one...maybe the weather in Houston will be better for our yellow thumbs.

  2. Everything looks so wonderful!!! I linked up with a garden post from a few weeks ago, I have a garden update scheduled for next week.

  3. I know you already saw my post, but I thought I'd add it to the links. :)

    Your garden is looking so beautiful.

  4. Finally linked up! I love your garden!

  5. Garden design is a feature that the Japanese perfected long years ago. Garden beauties outside a house always fascinate the people around and create a soothing experience.
